States F-L Trivia Questions

1. Why would a man who had been born in Zurich, Switzerland - Heinrich (Henry) Hartmann Wirz - have been tried and executed on conspiracy and murder charges in Georgia in 1865?

From Quiz
FIGIK-HILIK (The States F-L In Acronym Format)

Answer: he was a prisoner-of-war camp commandant

Wirz was the camp commandant at the notorious Andersonville Prison in Macon County Georgia during the American Civil War years. The conditions at Andersonville were, at best, horrible. At worst, the prison was described by many of its inmates as "Hell". While Wirz was not responsible for the lack of food available, decent sanitation or lack of medical supplies (though he himself had been a doctor), he may have been responsible for some mistreatment of individual soldiers. During his trial in Washington, D.C. a supposed eyewitness presented extremely damning evidence that resulted in Wirz being one of only two people executed for war crimes during the Civil War; (the other being a man named Champ Ferguson). Eleven days after his execution, the 'eyewitness' was found to be guilty of perjury regarding the trial and quickly disappeared.

2. Using only the four "I" states for comparison, which has the highest average elevation?

From Quiz The Four "I" States

Answer: Idaho

With its eastern border located entirely in the Rocky Mountains, Idaho has the highest mean elevation by far, according to the U.S. Geological Survey at 5,000 feet, with Mount Borah being its highest point at 12,662 feet. Iowa is second at mean elevation at 1,100 feet and its highest point at 1,670 feet, located on farmland. Indiana and Illinois follow with mean elevations of 700 and 600 feet, respectively.

3. Who was the first U.S. President to have been both born and raised in Illinois?

From Quiz FIGIK-HILIK (The States F-L In Acronym Format)

Answer: Ronald Reagan

Ronald Wilson Reagan was the first U.S. President to have been born and raised in Illinois, although Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, and Barack Obama were all living in Illinois at the time of their elections. Reagan was born in Tampico, Illinois, and raised in the town of Dixon.

4. In which "I" state would you find the World Heritage Site known as Cahokia Mounds, featuring a 100-foot-tall man-made mound, the largest prehistoric earthen construction in the Americas?

From Quiz The Four "I" States

Answer: Illinois

Completely handmade, Monk's Mound towers 100 feet above the alluvial plain near Collinsville, Illinois. The mound measures 13 acres at its base and probably took 200 years to complete by people carrying earth in baskets from nearby river banks. When in use around AD 1100, it had a large temple on its top surface.

5. What Idaho town was the first in the world to rely on nuclear power as a source of energy?

From Quiz FIGIK-HILIK (The States F-L In Acronym Format)

Answer: Arco

Arco was the first town in the world to be lit by nuclear power; however, it was also the first location to experience a plant "melt-down" in which people died. On January 3, 1961, a reactor at a local nuclear power plant caused three deaths. These constituted the world's first fatal reactor accidents. (Another more pleasant Idaho 'first': Sun Valley ski resort was where the world's first chairlift was installed in 1936.)

6. Which "I" state has long been the largest producer of potatoes?

From Quiz The Four "I" States

Answer: Idaho

Idaho is the nation's largest potato producer, producing about one fourth of the nation's potato output. It so far outstrips the other three "I's" that they are not even listed in potato-producing states on the potato production website I used for research, which lists America's top 19 potato production states.

7. In which U.S. state is the largest natural cave system in the world located?

From Quiz FIGIK-HILIK (The States F-L In Acronym Format)

Answer: Kentucky

Kentucky is home to Mammoth Cave National Park, the longest system of caves in the world. Some of its more popular features include Grand Avenue, Frozen Niagara, Big Clifty Sandstone and Fat Man's Misery. Mammoth Cave covers over 400 miles of underground pathways. The National Park Service offers a variety of cave tours. Some are electrically lighted tours while others are lit only by paraffin lamps with which visitors are outfitted. Some tours lead off into muddy crawl spaces and hidden tunnels. The park is located primarily in Edmonson County, Kentucky, just to the northeast of the city of Bowling Green.

8. Choosing among the four "I" states only, which one has the lowest point of elevation above sea level, at only 279 feet?

From Quiz The Four "I" States

Answer: Illinois

With the southernmost point among the four "I" states, Illinois has the closest point of elevation to sea level near the city of Cairo where the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers meet. Called "Little Egypt," the southern third of Illinois has its own unique geography and culture.

9. Which U.S. state had a conflict with the state of Missouri during the so-called Honey War of the 1830s; a "war" in which no one was actually killed?

From Quiz FIGIK-HILIK (The States F-L In Acronym Format)

Answer: Iowa

This conflict began as nothing more than a misunderstanding, (as do MOST wars; right?). This one began as a border dispute between the two states. Yeah, a 9.5 mile wide border. It did, however, encompass nearly the entire length of the two states, Iowa's southern and Missouri's northern boundaries. This dispute had several causes, including some vague wording in Missouri's Constitution about boundaries, mistakes made during surveying following the Louisiana Purchase, and misunderstandings that had been written concerning Native American treaties (which of course the native tribes were largely ignorant of and were not consulted about). The U.S. Supreme Court finally had to intervene in the dispute. No one was injured, and the "war" came to a peaceful conclusion, but not before three trees containing honeybee hives were chopped down; hence the name the "Honey War".
